In 2016, Kerang Christian College will offer Prep to Year 12 studies for the first time in the College’s history. The Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) notified the College this week about the significant milestone.
The College believes offering Prep to Year 12 at one school is exactly what many families in our community have been looking for. Students throughout the school have also appreciated studying a broad range of subjects. This has included over twenty elective and specialist classes in the Middle School (Years 7 – 9) during the past two years, and providing nineteen VCE subject choices in 2015 plus video conference and distance education learning opportunities.
The College was granted permission to proceed with Year 11 and Senior Secondary VCE in 2015 by the VRQA and most recently Year 12 for 2016. The approval acknowledges compliance with government standards and provision of an effective curriculum framework.
“This milestone would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the Kerang Christian College staff, teachers, administrators and our College Board who all believed in the College’s vision, mission and commitment to excellence in Christian education,” Mr Bond said.
The strategic goal of expanding Kerang Christian College towards Year 12 has been in the works for almost nine years. The most recent application to expand the College to include Year 12 registration was completed by the College Leadership Team of Mr Michael Bond, Miss Michelle Cuddon, Head of Secondary School; and Mrs Michelle Café, Head of Senior School.
“While this is another milestone in the history of Kerang Christian College, it will not be the last one,” highlighted Mr Bond. “The College will aim to mature academic programs, continue to grow, and continue to strive towards providing excellence in Christian education.”
The College has recruited staff with VCE teaching and leadership experience during the past few years in preparation for the commencement of VCE studies in 2015 and 2016. Furthermore, the College has developed a wide range of new school facilities during the expansion process.
The development of the VCE subjects offered by Kerang Christian College has been a careful process. Over the past few years, the College has been researching the potential directions and needs of the existing Senior School student cohort, and the subject selections of past students. The College has also been investigating the subject participation trends across the region and around the state.
We look forward to many exciting years ahead at Kerang Christian College.
